The old plugin, aka BPMN2 Process Editor, is not yet retired. Red Hat plans to support this editor when we provide support for jBPM 5.

The new plugin, aka BPMN2 Visual Editor, is not yet fully baked. While the graphics look great, as you have discovered, many of the the element attributes are not suitable for jBPM 5 and not exposed in a way that would make sense to a user. This is a work in progress. Compared to a month ago, there are more attributes exposed than before. For example for Script Tasks there is a Script Language attribute and a Script attribute (though the Script Language attribute did not populate when downloading a process definition from the Web Designer). Process properties such as ID, Name, and Package Name are exposed and properly set, etc. And there is support for defining process Properties. But there are still a lot left to go.

For now if you want to create an executable process definition then use either the old BPMN2 Process Editor or use the Web Designer. Hopefully the BPMN2 Visual Editor will be mature enough to use in another month or so.
